    Risky Business #610 -- Propellerheads in dark on JetBrains

    Joe Slowik and Katie Nickels are guest co-hosts in this week’s edition of the show. They join Patrick Gray to talk about:


    Mimecast having some stolen certificate, errr, “problems”
    The confusing reports about JetBrains
    Analysis of the malware used in the SolarWinds campaign
    Australian man arrested in Germany and charged with running DarkMarket
    The Great Deplatforming of 2021


    This week’s show is brought to you by Gigamon.

    If you’re a Gigamon shop you should really take a look at their ThreatInsight platform, that’s a no brainer. Even if you’re not, they’re real players in the network detection and response space. Joining us in this week’s sponsor interview is Jason Tesarz, a senior product manager for Gigamon ThreatInsight. He joined the show to talk about a few things, like how these days the NDR vendors are competing more around their workflows than trying to be the most comprehensive in detection.

    This week’s show is brought to you by Signal Sciences. In this week’s sponsor interview we’ll be talking to a Signal Sciences customer, Doug DePerry.

    Proofpoint’s Ryan Kalember is this week’s sponsor guest. He joins the show to talk about their rather different approach to DLP and insider threat detection. You may have noticed we don’t really talk about DLP a whole bunch on this show because it’s, well, really boring. But Proofpoint actually has an interesting approach to the problem that’s different enough to be interesting, so do stick around for that.
